Back in 2016 and up to 2019, I was actively working on Fiverr. As you know that there is huge competition on Fiverr. I used a couple of methods to rank my gig on Fiverr and 1 of them worked like a miracle.
And this trick has given me the opportunity to sell more than 25,000 USD (twenty-five thousand). See my income report (earnings) in the below screenshot:
However, I don’t work on Fiverr these days because it’s not worth my time. But I still have the account and I may delete it in the near future, and after I make a full & complete resource.
Anyways, this post is not about my story, it’s all about ranking your gig on the first page of Fiverr.
But I wrote a little bit about my personal experience because I have to ensure that you’re getting information from a person who has real experience on Fiverr.
But what if 1M people try my method of ranking gigs? Will it rank all of their gigs?
The answer is very simple, NO. This method will not work for everyone because of two main reasons:
- It’s very hard to do.
- You have to be professional & experienced in your field.
The proven method of ranking gigs on Fiverr
- Collect some (approx 50) leads who don’t have accounts on Fiverr. These are your prospects and these leads could be email addresses, phone numbers, Skype contacts, etc.
- Reach out to them with your offerings and make at least 5 conversions one by one.
- After you convert a lead, give him/her your gig link (that you want to rank) and tell them to signup & make the payment on Fiverr.
- Once you bring a few clients on Fiverr from outside, they will start ranking your gig on their first page.
Why & how does this method works for ranking your gig
Fiverr keeps track of every incoming URL. And if you bring outside clients to Fiverr, they will keep track of it and award you.
Moreover, if you bring clients to their platform who don’t have accounts on Fiverr, they will really love it. This process will give a clear signal to their algorithm that you’re doing your best and people are curious enough for your gig.
But how do you know if the prospect already has an account or not (on Fiverr)?
Firstly, you should not ask them when you’re discussing with the prospects at the early stage. Secondly, you don’t have to be aware of it because you will also get a ranking facility from Fiverr even if the prospect/client already has an account (less facility than new clients).
How long Fiverr will keep ranking your gig using this method
At least for one month and this is what I saw in my personal experience. You have to keep working and delivering outstanding work to all the clients.
Also, try to keep at least 5/7 orders in the queue after your gig ranks. And you will get these orders mostly from existing customers on Fiverr.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR GIG GOES DOWN AGAIN
Human makes mistakes and this is no different on Fiverr. If you received slightly negative feedback, Fiverr may push you a little bit down. Also, there are chances of order cancellation.
They take “Private Feedback” into consideration. And in my personal experience, private feedback has a greater impact than public feedback.
Whatever the reason, if you saw that your ranked gig went down, follow the same method to rank your gig again.
Once your gig ranked on the first page and once you started rolling in, don’t increase your gig price. This is what I’ve seen when most people started getting many orders and after getting a new (higher) level.
Fiverr will never hold you back from increasing gig prices. But I saw the gig went down after increasing the price (for a ranked gig).
If you really need to increase the price, I would advise increasing the price by 10% (max) and after you make 100 more sales.
Otherwise, you have to follow the ranking method very frequently.
Some other factors that you have to take into consideration
Many sellers on Fiverr seek a shortcut to rank their gigs and sometimes they follow bad tricks (a few of them).
If you’re fairly new or if you’re thinking to sell on Fiverr, see freelancing on Fiverr at first. It will give you a clear idea about getting started & the dos and don’ts.
Some of the readers may also think that this ranking method will also work if they bring fake clients to Fiverr. But it’s not the case. See why fake clients & fake reviews will not work.
Ranking gigs on the first page of Fiverr is really hard and not all the sellers can do it. But if you follow my method successfully, your gig will be ranked very soon because I proved this method several times & it worked by 100% for me. If it worked for me then it will also work for you as well. Good luck!
